“What I think makes Siena from other schools is the nature of the institution. Quite frankly, if you compare the psychology programs across institutions you are going to see a good deal of common elements, of overlap; every program has an introduction to psychology, every program has a developmental, abnormal, social, and the like. So in terms of choosing an undergraduate psychology program, I think you look at the nature of the institution, whether you feel comfortable there and whether people seem to notice you as a person… and that’s where I think Siena really shines.”

“I love teaching at Siena. The interactions with students, the exploration of ideas, and the mutual learning that occurs are all reasons why the classroom is a special place to be. I believe that teaching is a stewardship. As such, teaching can be a demanding vocation. But if the demands are great, so too are the joys and satisfactions. And that is also why so many of us here at Siena have such a deep devotion to the art and craft of teaching.”
